Monday Stir

-Domino’s, the pizza chain that famously offered a 30-minute delivery guarantee way back in 1984, has issued a new time-based offer, this time on its carside delivery.

Domino’s Carside Delivery 2-Minute Guarantee lets people check in when they arrive at the store, then a Domino’s team member will head to their car in less than two minutes or the next pizza is free. To promote the program, WorkInProgress made a series of ads stating that the Domino’s team members will get that delivery there in rain, snow and even through a herd of wild animals or a group of bears.


In addition, Domino’s and online betting service DraftKings Inc. have launched Domino’s Carside Delivery 2-Minute Guarantee Over/Under Challenge, giving customers the chance to predict if Domino’s Carside Delivery nationwide will be quicker than two minutes, more or less than 80% of the time, for the chance to win a share of $200,000.
